Cultivating diversity, equity and inclusion in biosafety and biosecurity is a key priority for the  IFBA. In addition to working directly with biosafety professionals, the IFBA’s Equity Coordinating Committee is engaging with decision and policy makers, institutional top management, and other influential leaders to elevate DEI policy and program implementation at the organizational level. An engaged leadership with a solid commitment to DEI will positively impact all workers, including those on the frontlines, in the safe and secure handling of biological materials.
